Tue 25 May 2021 | 7:32

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is confident the club will look into the signing of Real Madrid’s loanee Martin Odegaard in the summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old joined from

Real Madrid

in January on a half-season loan deal, scoring two goals and registering two assists in 20 appearances and now


is hopeful the club can complete a deal with Odegaard's parent club over a permanent transfer.

However, the 22-year-old is tipped to return to Madrid as he bids to fight for a place in Zidane’s starting lineup.

But despite the situation, Arteta told an interview with the

club’s official website

that the club remain in talks over a transfer.

“We have a very clear and strong opinion on what we would like to do”,

the Spaniard said after their 2-0 victory over 



“He’s not our player. We will have discussions in the next few weeks. And respect first of all that he’s a Real Madrid player, but we will have those talks.

“We’ve tried to do everything we could to get Martin performing for the team, which I think he’s done.

“He’s adapted really well to our way of playing and to the club. Hopefully we have given him the hope and feeling that it could be a good place for him.”
